Glass Dome

  • 7.75" D x 7" H
  • handblown
  • Made from recycled glass
  • Made in Guatemala

 Who made this product? The cooperative, COPAVIC, formed in 1976 when seventeen artisans came together and reopened a former glass factory in Cantel, Guatemala. 

Why is it ethical? These artisans crush and then melt down broken discarded glass and hand blow the molten fragments into fresh recycled pieces. Not only does COPAVIC protect and renew their environment with recycled glass, they revitalized their community with living wages, insurance, and skills that continue to serve artisans beyond COPAVIC’s kiln-lined walls.

Who made this product? In a small town outside of Antigua, Guatemala, the Artesanos de San Pedro have created a workshop dedicated to the sustainable production of handcrafted cutting boards and wine stoppers.
